Default Hood fitment '86 GT

Is there a tech section where parts interchanges are given?
I have an '86 GT that has a fiberglass hood w/ 4" cowl induction. I'd like to swap back to the original hood. What years fit?

What do I need beside the hood, and hinges?

Just find an ad for aftermarket hoods and see what the interchanges are.
79-03 are not all the same.......

your going to look for 83-86 mustang gt hoods.

87-93 hoods were some what different in the area of the head lights.

OK, 83-86 hood.
From some pictures, I see a cutout in the hood. What goes over that opening?

Some of the hoods had a factory scoop and some didn't. Im not sure about witch ones did or didn't, and it may have been an option.
